rain event. an ice storm is brewing similar to what we saw in kentucky and tennessee yesterday. let me show you why. here's the forecast radar. this is today. a piece of this energy that we're seeing developing tonight in the colorado rockies will move out, and then what's going to happen is here's chicago. we have in chicago a winter storm watch posted for tomorrow morning through monday morning. and why it's freezing rain and not snow is they are right at the surface is below freezing but higher up in the atmosphere it's liquid. it's coming down as liquid and freezing when it gets to that colder air. so for sunday night, and again that watch is for tomorrow morning through monday morning so sunday into sunday night is when that freezing rain is, and monday we'll watch that freezing rain and snow move east in toward upstate new york and the northeast. on the other note in terms of the temperatures, we'll see a warm-up on the way finally. a ridge of high pressure is moving in kind of moving away that arctic air and misplacing it. temperatures 20 degrees warmer than where they've been.
. and we talk about the ice and definitely for people who are going to be driving through tennessee and kentucky and portions of ohio. the ice is the big factor. you can't see it. it's blass ice in a lot of cases. it's moving through fairly quickly, especially across kentucky. by the way, we'll just go ahead and show you what's happening along interstate 65. this is along the blue ridge parkway. this right here is interstate 65. just south of that near elizabe elizabethtown they have a pileup there because of icy conditions. it's become at least aggravating and at best you're going to be slowed down but at worse it could cause quite a few traffic accidents. watch out for that. where you see this, this is where ice is being reported. it's fairly difficult to kind of pin down what's going to happen as we go over the next several hours but this is the ice accumulation of 0 .3 inches. a tenth of an inch of ice over some areas. as mentioned, this is going to move through quickly, but these overnight low temperatures are going to continue to be cold. the ice is not going to disappear any
. there is wind damage all across the southeast, some of it from tornadoes. one death is reported in tennessee, another in georgia. right now the worst weather is crossing georgia. cnn's miguel marquez is in adairsville where there is significant damage. tell us what is going on. >> reporter: huge damage. at least one person, we understand, was killed when a building collapsed but fortunately not where i'm standing, at least not that we know of. this entire area -- this looks like it was someone's -- part of somebody's lunch that was being made is here. across the road, this is the main road in adairsville, georgia. two roads are completely destroyed. you can see the cars that are flipped over and semitrucks are flipped over as well. you can see this was a plant making heavy machinery this morning, 50 to 100 people in this thing. it is completely demolished. everyone, everyone made it out alive and fine. we talked to a couple of employees who said they hid in the bathroom and prayed and prayed but they finally were able to get out and amazingly enough, nobody was killed there. throughout this
of tennessee who says why now, mr. president? >> if he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this, why have we not seen photos, why has he not referenced it? at any point in time, as we have had this gun debate that is ongoing you would have thought it would have been a point of reference. i tell you what i do think. i think he should invite me to camp david and i'll go skeet shooting with him and i bet i'll beat him. >> as to why there are no photos, white house spokesman jay carney hedged. >> is there a photograph of him doing it? >> there may be but i haven't seen it. >> why haven't we heard about it before? >> because when he goes to camp david he goes to spend time with his family and friends and relax, not to produce photographs. >> again, whatever! still, why did the president feel the need to bring this up at all, if he wanted to win over gun rights advocates, skeet shooting isn't exactly on target. the nra said "the second amendment is not about shooting skeet and it's not a tradition. it's a fundamental right upheld by the u.s. supreme court." so while obama seemed to be reac
